Cultivating a Prayer Life that Makes a Difference
Why do Christians so often fail to open the gift of prayer that God has given to them? God desires to communicate with His children. He desires to unveil the hidden. Yet many times we are satisfied not knowing. In this revised and refreshed edition of Dr. Charles Stanley’s Handle with Prayer, readers will be inspired to revive their time of prayer with God.
Prayer is essential to the life of every believer. It connects us with our heavenly Father and opens the door for Him to move in our lives, to impact our circumstances, and to help us make wise choices. Handle with Prayer is a definitive guide to the power and practice of prayer. This modern-day classic is a must-read for anyone craving a rich, intimate prayer life that produces results. God wants to help us through difficulties and to reveal the unseen. Yet few of us would claim to have a satisfying prayer life. Dr. Stanley reveals that prayer is the ultimate resource for every believer. Inside he shares:
• How to pray with authority
• How to receive answers to prayer
• Why prayers can seem to go unanswered
• How to pray in God’s will
• How to pray for others
Originally released in 2000, this book has already sold over 250,000 copies and now it features new artwork, an enhanced study guide, and updated content to connect with today’s readers. Using stories from his own life, Dr. Stanley engages readers with his insight and truthfulness. According to Dr. Stanley, “Jesus encourages us to pray. He tells us to ask, seek, and knock. We ask for things, we seek understanding, and we knock on doors of opportunity that lie before us. The Lord is saying that in every area of life we can find what we are looking for by talking to the heavenly Father.”
The included study guide offers key insights that can enhance your journey in prayer and help you apply principles that can revolutionize your time spent with God. So uncover God’s solution for whatever you may face and discover how life is best when handled with prayer.
